    Every stop was enjoyable. The fabulous views of the Glasshouse mtns, the delicious and generous cheese tasting platters, the yummy wine tasting, the perfect lunch location, visits to Maleny and Montville with a great bunch of people…big thanks to Jan our guide for facilitating such a happy day

    although the weather hindered the view for most of the lookouts, it didn't stop us enjoying the cheese, wine, chocolate and lunch. Not your typical wine tasting at a cellar door, instead we tried a selection of local wines at the barrel, a restaurant. The mix of cheese/food/wine and chocolate was well balanced and a nice change from tours that only focus on wine. Overall an enjoyable experience, it was just a shame about the weather.

    cheese tasting, 2 course lunch and the chocolate shop. A good coach driver and a nice group to travel with.

    It was a lovely day but the best parts were the view from Mary Cairncross, the view at the waterfall at the end of the day and the beautiful spot we had lunch in - so relaxing and special and we definitely want to go back there.

    Excellent trip, full of lovely food, wine, views and stories. Jeff was a great guide. I'd recommend this to friends and family.

    Our experience with Coast to Hinterland Tours has been one of our bucket list moments. Geoff was fantastic with all his knowledge, keeping us on time & out of the wet weather. We will be booking more local tours even through this company even though we live on the coast. Value for money & value in food, wine & cheese! 110%/100

    Jan took us for the day and it was fabulous! A wonderful experience that we highly recommend to all.

    My daughter and I experienced this day trip today with Jan as our driver. I could not speak more highly of Jan’s capable and safe driving, her knowledge of the places we visited and interesting local information. Maleny, Montville and Mapletown are beautiful hinterland village with interesting and botique shops to browse in. The cheese, wine and lunch were delicious and the views throughout the trip are just amazing. The whole day is very well set out and totally worth it.
